Forum: GratefulDead Subject: slipped through the cracks

I sampled pretty much all of 1991 and for some reason this Cal Expo run never caught my attention. Maybe because I'm a Bruce snob for this time period and he is not present for this gig. Sirius played David lemeux's aud. master last night and I have to say a damn fin show clocking in at 3 hours - and no it is not drums and space heavy. Many highlights but if you check it out take a listen to truckin, it has hits of an Arabia jam before going into Terrapin.

Lobster, I am a big fan of the Bruce shows. What were your top 5 shows or favorite runs at a venue?

As for runs with hornsby there are a bunch but I'd start with oakland 10-91, MSG 9/90, Boston garden 9/91, oakland 12/90 (new years run) and the McNicholls Sports arena 12-90.

I realize I wasn't asked but what about that Bonner Springs 6-25-91? That's one I come back to a lot.

06/25/91 was the last time I saw the Grateful Dead. Scarlet Begonias was very good. The kid next to me decided to start singing at the top of his lungs half way through the show so I moved and I realized after watching the crowd I was done "on tour". Things sure had changed since my first in 1972...not necessarially bad but just different for me among the masses. It was time to stop for me.

Interesting, this was the tour I decided to call it quits as far as city to city touring also. I had only seen the Dead a few times since Brents Death, and I just remember having no connection to the crowd during the whole tour. The only exception was maybe Buckeye Lake where the scene was just so bizarre it was actually pretty fun and RFK where I met up with an old friend finally and it helped to recaptured some of the magic.

"The scene", whatever it was...deteriorated for sure. My forst show was in 1979, and while some crowds were often rowdy (i saw the bulk of my shows on the East coast), to me the biggest thing that changed was the influx of "faux heads" after 1987 (I won't call them Touch-heads) who were clearly there just for the excuse to over-indluge in whatever-drugs, alcohol--and be "seen" at the scene.

Tickets became pricey and harder to get (the annoyance of the 'mail-in' requests) whereas only a year earlier in 1986, you could still roll up to the pkg. lot the night of the show and score a ticket at close to face value.

I still saw many great shows post-1987, but by the time I saw my last in 1994, I was definitely not going out of my way to get to a show.
